From Stories that Emerge

Fables are real compared to the reality that births them Who can focus on life and probe its nature so patiently? Life’s truancy becomes unbearable even to the misbehaved boy How much muck can those hands gather? Deface and defame the facade of life with vulgar graffiti Unclean thoughts desecrate the mind at odd hours Abuse finds its legitimacy in mainstream communication A foolish mask … Continue reading From Stories that Emerge

Through The Course Untrue

How long can you stare at the stillness brought upon by gloominess? Sincerely holding on to the cynic who wants to believe the unbelievable All the images are solitary, if not being bound by surrounding reflections Blue sky responds with a wry smile at the ripples of life’s chaos Faces distorted over the gloomy canvas creased by the daily troubled accents The languages strain for … Continue reading Through The Course Untrue

Vacant Feelings

The pandemonium from the vacant arguments  Somehow, the day is forced to settle down unquietly Time is pulled into the argument and wound tightly Grotesque voices scrape across the walls Murals of anxiety, aggressiveness, and foul language Permanent signs of dissonance Natural lights have been barred from the premises The togetherness of loneliness and other passive fear Many overlapping coffee stains tables the discord Dust … Continue reading Vacant Feelings

The Futility of Seeking

Wedged between heaps of ignorance Where does one find momentary sanity  Thoughts, like dust, settles inconspicuously Trapped with many other particles  Incoherent, insouciant, and incisively destructive Devouring the soft fabric, till it looks ragged Some idiot must have planned all this Thinking of switching off the consciousness Seeking clemency at the precipice of foolishness Wild dance, celebrations of absurdness ~Amitav Continue reading The Futility of Seeking

Uncertain Moments

The trembling words do not embrace the mind dearly Rarely, they are delightful of the heart’s lovely desires  Weary days and nights, tiredness takes possession of the soul Spiritless words scattered here and there- an incoherent bundle Of denials, futile communications, and tiresome relations With the uninspired soul that camouflages itself with melancholy Ridiculing the happiness of nature for being truthfully expressive Invoking the night’s … Continue reading Uncertain Moments
